Question I need car help, car heads.

I want to put Halo lights on my Camaro LS. It's as basic as you can possibly buy it. I recieved it from my parents as a grad present. I can do this right? Does anyone know of a kit I can get to do it quickly?

Btw the goal is to get new rims, paint my calipers, buy slotted roaters, get the halo headlights, maybe fog lights, smoke the tail lights and maybe a new grill.

So far: Tinted my windows and put nice leather in it.

Please no technical terms, i'm ignorant when it comes to cars. =/

Spending the $1000 or whatever for RS style HID's and then smoking them would be a complete waste. If the halo is all you want, Oracle makes a kit for $170. http://www.automotivelightstore.com/DualColorSALE.aspx

He wants to make his taillights, not the headlights.

Yeah that's what the kit i linked to is for. At least their video shows the halo kit installed in non-HIDs.

Yep, did those myself too. easy install once you get the front off. BUT I'll have to update once I see how I'm going to wire the halos-They're supposed to wire to the side markers, and that's what I have my fog lights wired to now. I MAY wire a switch for the fogs and halos like a lot of folks did..

I got my foglights/harness from gmpartsdirect. Here's the link:

http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/catalog/frameset.cfm

a link to the diagram:

http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...layCatalogid=0

You have to make sure you get the part numbers listed in the diagram and you only need ONE harness, not two..So that's TWO bezels TWO On the LS, there's NO connector for the fog lights on the main harness, so I spliced the connectors on the new harness to the sidemarker lamps (it's easier than it sounds)

That way they come on automatically with the headlights at night or you can run them with the parking lights only.

The fog lights really make a difference, giving me a wider field of view at night, besides looking good!!

Why? Are you planning to drive that fast not at an airport? Your tires are not rated for speeds over 118mph. That's why the limiter is there. Think before you do something foolish.

Three things. First, please don't try an lecture me. Second, my tires are not stock. Third, because if i wanna drive fast on a track in my sports car, i think i'm entitled to that.

No disrespect, but don't disrespect me.

If you're opening you headlights to put in halos, I would strongly suggest doing an HID retrofit at the same time! I've never had HIDs, but now that I've done the retrofit it is going to be a must have for all future cars.

not a sports car, also pls yes do it at a track so you don't kill anyone else. the only way to get rid of the limiter is a tune but with that there goes your warranty
